Default 'Start Controller'

I don't know if this is the right place to post this but JDownloader will not start, I updated on Monday night and now when loading up it gets stuck and says 'Start Controller'.

This happened before about 6 months ago but that time I could find a solution because it had been caused by an updated zippyshare.com plugin. A link to the previous file before the update was posted and that solved the problem.

I have been reading posts here and running jdupdate is suggested but it says I could lose my link list and I am scared to take the chance.

I am using Java 7 (build 1.7.0_25-b17) on Windows Vista.

You will need to close JDownloader if running
Mac
You can do this via terminal, 'cd /Applications/jDownloader.app/Contents/Resources/Java' (think it is) and run 'java -jar jdupdate.jar', I assume you can do this also in file explorer type of thing, and run jdupdate.jar as java application also (sorry not a Mac user).
Windows
Open cmd, goto JDownloader install directory 'cd "c:\program files\jdownloader\"', run 'javaw -jar jdupdate.jar' or via explorer click jdupdate.jar and run 'Java application'

Other solutions to help solve issue,
make sure your not using Java 1.6, upgrade to Java 1.7.0_65 or newer (seems to have higher permgen allocations), but stay away from Java 1.8 for JDownloader 0.9/NIGHTLY.

Alternatively the easiest solution is to move to JDownloader 2, as it doesn't have this issue.

I'm having the same problem using Java 6 and OS X 10.6.8. It only began a couple weeks ago. I've tried uninstalling -reinstalling and it still JD continues to freeze. I switched to JD2 a couple days ago, but with my premium Rapidgator account and other hosts, ...it's slow as molasses. I can download a file from Chrome faster.

I don't want to upgrade my system. I've got a lot of apps that won't work with 10.7 or higher, + upgrades would cost a fortune, for instance to get ProTools to work with the newer versions would cost US $400.00 alone.

When I try reinstalling 09, it crashes. Here is the log file:

raztoki, you are a genius.

I reinstalled the release version for Mac, which gave an error - see log in post directly above this one - and then ran the jdupdate.jar as you described in the 3rd post above this one, the JAVA console opened up, a bunch of things updated, and now it seems to work just fine again on Snow Leopard 10.6.8.

Thank you!

With jD closed, I tried that from Finder, and Terminal, and in both cases it says unable to open jupdate.jar I even tried sudo in terminal, so it's not a permissions issue (sudo is unix for "superuser do once", making the user root for that command). Any ideas?
